BEACH HOUSE AND CUPITT'S WINERY!

Sorry everyone... this is going to be a long post but we've had such a great day and I wanted to share it with you ! Our friend Brian from South Africa, is visiting . We woke up this morning on the farm to 144mm of rain , so we decided to go out for the day. We have a beach house at Mollymook, on the South Coast of NSW - 3 hours from Sydney. We wanted to show Brian the house, (see photos above ) and as it was raining there as well, we decided to go on to Cupitt's Winery for lunch. Cupitt's, is just outside Mollymook, sitting prettily on top of a green hill out in the countryside !
|Love the old stone walls and gate post at the entrance|
|Gorgeous old stone building|
|The outside stone oven which the chef uses every day !|
Lunch was superb !! World-class food in the countryside of NSW, Australia !! Rosie and Griff Cupitt happened to be there for lunch as well ! Big plans are underfoot for new developments at Cupitt's and read more about them here . Did you know that they also have accommodation at Cupitt's ?
|My beautiful starter - Cured Petuna Ocean Trout on warm Kipflers with Rocket, Mustard and Dill|

Then it was back to South Acres, only 1hr 30 mins drive. We arrived home to a blanket of mist, enveloping the farm, drifting slowly back and forth.
|Welcome to South Acres Farm|

|Ever so curious !|
